Polar Bear & Penguin, a charming play for young audiences written and performed by John Currivan & Paul Curley.
The tale of an unlikely encounter between a Polar Bear and a Penguin.
This is the story of polar opposite characters meeting for the first time, getting to know one another and learning how to survive in a world that is melting beneath their feet…paws…flippers.
Paul Curley (THE DIG and Bake!) and John Currivan (The Bockety World of Henry & Bucket), bring this quirky and relevant play for young audiences to life. Award-winning director Ian Cameron (White) joins the team along with designers Ger Clancy and Sarah Jane Shiels and composer Denis Clohessy.
Polar Bear & Penguin is a tale of our time, infused with humour, friendship and fish.
